Angry with her friend and hating men in general, Kayleigh heads out on her own to visit the Emerald Isle.

An Officer's Journey


                       Book Three in the New York Journey Series

Luke Taylor has grown weary of finding dead bodies.  As a twenty-year veteran of the Bureau of Criminal Investigations for the New York State Troopers, he feels like he’s seen it all.  Maybe it’s time to retire and move him and his son out of his beloved Adirondack Mountains.  Luke decides that a road trip will do them both some good. 

Making their way south to explore the Carolinas, they stop for a side journey and late lunch at a diner in the fabled town of Woodstock, when Luke’s ever-present cell phone starts vibrating on his belt.  Reluctant to take the call from his office, his professional guilt kicks in.  Freak, will I ever get away?  But his attitude changes quickly when he finds out that a six-year-old child is missing from a primitive campsite in Northern Columbia County, less than 60 miles north-east of where he was sitting.   

On the way to Valatie, Luke calls his friend, and renown Search and Rescue tracker, Kara Maloney.  Not only was the search area practically in her backyard, but there was no one better to help find this child than her.  Then Luke’s plans to move south get put on ice when he reconnects with Kara’s friend, Robin Singer, a quick-witted woman with ginger-blonde curls that tease him with every giggle. Not to mention her corn flower blue eyes that he gets blissfully lost in while wondering what her delicate lips will feel like.

Widowed five years before she meets the handsome trooper working with her friend, Robin grapples to resist the quick smile that softens his ruggedly chiseled features. With hazel eyes, close cropped blonde hair, and a derriere that wonderfully filled his tight jeans, this cop looked more like a mid-west cowboy than a northern New York woodsman. Robin lets her fantasies play in her head but, ultimately must make a choice based upon what is best for her two young sons, a struggle that Luke is also intimately familiar with.

The Journey Creekside 

​Book Two in the New York Journey Series

Michael Corbin is a dedicated family man - so much so that he’s agreed to carry the mantle of responsibility of his parents’ property and business, Columbia Timber and Construction.  But two months in, Michael is sucker punched when his wife leaves him for another woman. 

Then one night while eating dinner alone in an Irish bar in Albany, he finally gets the chance to chat up a stunning red-head he’d met a few months before, unwittingly opening his heart to the woman who will save him and his world, marketing maven Aisling Bailey.

When money gets tight during a building dry-spell, Aisling convinces Michael to open the pristine 800 acres of Columbia Timber to primitive camping.  With a new generation of outdoor enthusiasts who believe in honoring Mother Earth and the proximity to metro-New York City, the idea could prove to be a winning combination to save the Corbin homestead. But their idea to share the mountain with others is in jeopardy when a clearing crew member gets lost and they need to call in a Search and Rescue team. And worse yet, their developing love for each other is threatened by the stress of it all.
